Liveblog of the first game of the 2009 World Baseball Classic. Oh yes. I am EXACTLY that crazy.
Well, that was exciting. Regular RotT commenter ivantopumpyouup was also awake to keep me company and watch LIVE BASEBALL FROM THE TOKYO DOME. The entire liveblog (which is basically just the two of us rambling) can be viewed above at any time simply by clicking "replay" in that box up there. It is probably deadly boring, but if you're sitting at work bored out of your mind, maybe it will be less boring than that.
postscript: things we learned from this game:
--China has first and last names on the backs of their jerseys
--pitcher Yu Darvish is really, really good
--CHINA= GREAT WALL
--JAPAN= MT. FUJI
--MLB 2K9 should be boycotted by everyone because of their terrifying digital Tim Lincecum ad
--Ichiro is a sexy beast even when he's not hitting
--US and Asian League baseballs are made out of different dead animals
--Orestes Destrade likes meaty ballplayers
--do not question SUPER "DRY"
